We’re so grateful for the countless wonderful people and companies, from OEM partners to celebrities, who have joined us on this phenomenal journey. Giving back is the heartbeat of Barrett-Jackson and the collector car community.”

VIN001 Charity Lots Sold at Barrett-Jackson 2019
In keeping with tradition, Barrett-Jackson gave bidders the chance to own three very special VIN 001 vehicles:
The 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition VIN 001 (Lot #3012) sold for $2.5 million, with 100 percent of the hammer price benefiting United Way for Southeastern Michigan, which was purchased by Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick. Featuring the same famous baby-blue-and-orange scheme worn by the Ford GT-40 that took down Ferrari 50 years ago, the package will also include the No. 9 graphics on the hood and doors, as well as a ghosted image on the interior door panels.
Barrett-Jackson teamed up with Toyota North America for the sale of the 2020 Toyota Supra VIN 20201 (Lot #3010), which raised $2.1 million to benefit the American Heart Association and The Bob Woodruff Foundation. The winning bidders of the first global production Supra were renowned collectors Jeanette and John Staluppi. VIN 20201 will be factory-finished with a matte gray exterior, red mirror caps and matte black wheels.
Carolyn and Craig Jackson were the winning bidders of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 VIN 001 (Lot #3008), which sold for $1.1 million to benefit JDRF.
“I’m a lifelong Shelby enthusiast and enjoyed a long friendship with Carroll Shelby,” said Jackson. “Over the years I’ve collected several rare Shelby Mustangs, including the ‘Green Hornet,’ and more recently the experimental Shelby, ‘Little Red.’ The 2020 GT500 VIN 001 is a descendant of those vehicles, and I’m honored to have it as a part of my collection. More importantly, the money from the sale of this rare Mustang will be donated to JDRF. Type 1 diabetes is a terrible disease, and Carolyn and I are grateful to be a part of helping JDRF find a cure.”
Four Chevrolet Camaros as seen in the Hollywood blockbuster movie franchise “Transformers,” sold as one lot on Saturday. The four Chevrolet Bumblebee Camaros were seen in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” (Lot #3009), “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” (Lot #3009.1), “Transformers: Age of Extinction” (Lot #3009.2) and “Transformers: The Last Night” (Lot #3009.3). Sold as a group for $500,000 with an additional donation of $25,000, 100 percent of the sale benefited Operation Homefront, which helps build strong, stable, and secure military families.
“There are no words to express how blessed we feel to be able to support so many wonderful charity organizations,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “You simply can’t put a price tag on all of the good that will come from the millions raised to help our kids, members of our U.S. military and first responders live richer, fuller lives. There’s no doubting the generous spirit of this hobby when our consigners and bidders open their hearts to help where help is needed most.”
